I got a core dump, but I didn't get anything usefull out of it:
(gdb) proc 0xfffffc000460d148      
(gdb) where
#0  0xfffffc0000403eb8 in mi_switch (p=0xfffffc000460d148)
    at /home/src/sys/arch/alpha/compile/DISCO/../../../../kern/kern_synch.c:856
warning: Hit heuristic-fence-post without finding
warning: enclosing function for address 0xfffffe00001911b8
This warning occurs if you are debugging a function without any symbols
(for example, in a stripped executable).  In that case, you may wish to
increase the size of the search with the `set heuristic-fence-post' command.

Otherwise, you told GDB there was a function where there isn't one, or
(more likely) you have encountered a bug in GDB.
